    Holy Name Catholic High grad bikes from Milwaukee to alma mater

    Kids rode around the school block as they awaited Paterick's arrival in Escanaba; even little children got involved by riding on the trike track. Awards were given to students with the most laps in each age group, with supporters pledging $3,000 to be used toward the re-opening of Holy Name Catholic High School. Paterick biked to Escanaba for his 50th HNHS class reunion, so when he heard about the “Now Is The Time” Capital Campaign to re-open Holy Name High School, he thought it would be a great idea to arrive a few days early and combine his trip with a fundraising drive for the new HNHS.   Paterick had a successful bike ride, though he ran into a headwind, which he said slowed him down.

    Hotel assignments for 2020 DNC convention in Milwaukee could stretch to O'Hare

    This week, state delegations will learn where they'll be housed for the 2020 Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee. And while two-thirds of the delegates will be staying within a 45-minute drive of Fiserv Forum, others could be housed as far away as Rosemont, Ill., near O'Hare International Airport. Housing arrangements for delegates mark the first big test for organizers of the event. And make no mistake: Hotels are a big deal for the thousands of delegates and alternates who will converge on the city July 13-16 as Democrats pick their presidential nominee.

    Marquette University is the latest campus to ban e-scooters on university property

    People found enjoying Milwaukee's recent influx of e-scooters on public sidewalks near Marquette University's campus will be faced with a hefty municipal fine, one part of an effort to enforce a new ban.  The university banned the e-scooters from campus Monday, following a safety review of the devices.

The scooters are allowed on public streets. The policy comes
